I want to update my family room and first floor rooms with a few things for the new year. What is the best color to add to freshen up a room? My house is very neutral with many different accents and pillows.

Thanks for your question! The best way to liven up your space is to add a few pops of color in each room with a fresh new color. What better way to brighten up and refresh your home than with the official color for 2013? Pantone’s Emerald 17-5641 TCX. Add a few new pillows, rugs and accessories. Less is more, so remember not to add more than a few items in each room and vary in size.
Choose a couple of colors to accent the Emerald. This blue green color looks crisp and modern with black and white decor, and sizzles with colors close on the color spectrum, like cyan blues, lime greens and royal blues!
Have fun and Happy New Year!
